Freedom is when you are able to choose how to live, where to live, with whom to live and whether to live at all.
You choose to live. You might as well decide how to live, where to live and with whom. You can choose because you are nobody’s slave; nobody owns you and nobody can tell you how to live your life but yourself. You should choose, because if you don’t, somebody else will, and if you let somebody else opt for you, it will never be exactly the way you wanted it. You must choose, and you must choose now, because you only pass this way but once.
Robert F. Bennett said that your life is the sum total of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.
Are you stuck in the same routine, the same job, the same home, with the same friends, watching the same TV shows? Or are you in a job that pays you well, and you know you’re supposed to feel successful, but all you feel is miserable and stressed and aching for something meaningful? You know that you need a change. You want to change your life for the better. You want a richer, more fulfilling and, above all, more passionate life. You still have dreams. You are young at heart and can hear a voice speaking to you from within. Sometimes it seems to whisper and sometimes it seems to cry out things like “Stop it! Get up! Move out! Start something new! Travel the world! Meet new people! Make love! Grow rich!”
You have certainly heard this voice before. It’s not dead. It’s just been buried beneath obligations and commitments and fears saying “I’m not good enough. ” Perhaps you’re frustrated or frightened. But do you really want to spend your entire life that way? A wise man once said, “Time is more important than money, because you can always get more money, but you can never get more time. ” One day, hard as it is to believe, your time will run out. Your life will be over. Life is the gift of time to do great things and impact other lives. So why waste time? Why not listen to the voice inside you, which has been telling you to get up, to reach out, to aim higher and to finally go and get what you deserve? You do deserve love, you do deserve money, you do deserve recognition and success, and you have got all it takes to achieve everything you want.
There is more money than you can ever spend. There are more attractive people than you can ever love. There are more beautiful beaches than you can ever touch. All you need lies inside you and all you have to do is believe.
To your health and wealth,
